He scored in his first game in the French league on 17
Born in Nice, Malang Sar completed all his training with FC Riviera. It was with OGC Nice who witnessed the baptism of fire in the first division Uber Eats, on August 14, 2016, against Stade Rennais. The left-handed, who was 17 years old, scored the only goal of the match and made a successful start.
The central defender won his first season with Nice. He played 32 matches, including 4 in the European Cup, during the 2016-2017 financial year, for which OGC Nice finished third on the podium. After 119 matches under the colors of his coaching club, Malang Sarr took a step further after that by joining Chelsea FC, one of Europe’s biggest clubs, which he recruited for in the summer of 2020.
Nearly 160 professional appearances
The London club immediately loaned him to FC Porto, where he won the Portuguese Super Cup and participated in the European Tour of the Dragon, which reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Last season, returning to Chelsea, Malang Sar played 21 official matches and topped the list of the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup, in addition to discovering the prestigious Premier League with the Blues.
International in all youth categories in France under-16 team Malang Sar has 8 heads with Esper, and a total of 44 picks under the tricolor. At 23, he played 159 matches at the highest level, including 18 in the European Cup.
I am very happy to join AS Monaco and return to the Uber Eats Premier League, a tournament I started in and know very well. I thank the club for its trust.
